He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow].
Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me.
Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "the lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.
So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.
We all experience times of testing, which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust him more, for along with every trial God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victoriously.

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail).
for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!
and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be death; there will no longer be sorrow and anguish, or crying, or pain; for the former order of things has passed away.
You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but you will restore me to life again and lift me up from the depths of the earth.
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.
My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the rock and strength of my heart and my portion forever.
God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble.
So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose
